Apex Legends Season 9 Summary

There is a lot coming in Apex Legends' Legacy update and it's going to be the biggest update yet in more ways than one.

Valkyrie, the newest Apex Legend, is at the heart of the update. She's an offensive Legend with a focus on verticality and attacking playstyles. The Bocek Bow is the newest weapon being added to Apex Legends and it introduces a new weapon category: Marksman Weapons.


There are also a few major changes coming to Olympus. The Icarus has returned from Deep Space and it has let a strange parasitic root loose on Olympus. There's going to be a start-of-season Quest that expands on the narrative behind this alongside the story being laid out by Ash and the new Arenas mode.

CRASH THE PARTY - This is one of the new locations in Apex Legends' Arenas mode

This brand-new permanent game mode is going to be an economy-based, 3v3 round-by-round elimination mode that features both new and existing Apex Legends locations. It's similar to Valorant, CS: GO, and Rogue Company in how it plays. However, as you imagine, Respawn Entertainment have put their own twist on things.
